French Maison Lancôme is thrilled to announce the appointment of a new face of the brand, the American Gen Zer, fashion icon, entrepreneur, and girl of the 21st century, Emma Chamberlain.

With her engaging personality and relaxed demeanor, Emma became a global sensation by establishing herself as one of the most popular fashion icons and effortlessly cool content creator. Shortly after launching her YouTube channel at the age of 16, Emma broke into social media stardom at a very fast pace. The success of her social content gaining traction came from Emma demonstrating an authentic version of herself, which made her stand out as a disruptor in the crowded content creator space. Chamberlain’s fans don’t only find her content entertaining and filled with humor, but rather comforting, feeling that they are not alone in their journey.

Since then, Emma won the People’s Choice award Pop Podcast category and was acknowledged by Forbes, making it on the ’30 under 30 – Social Media’ list in 2021. With her mannerisms, her unique video editing was largely imitated, shaping a new vlogging style, by keeping it real.

Bringing her modernity and edge to the French Maison of beauty, Emma says: “I have always had my own notion of beauty and didn’t project myself within the beauty industry because of the duality that I show, mixing comfort, with being nicely put together. Hence why, when Lancôme came to me, I felt so honored and excited that the brand understood and appreciated who I am”.

Joining the Lancôme stellar group of ambassadors, Emma will add her irresistible wit and singularity. Together with Lancôme, Emma will further spread the brand’s values of positive and powerful beauty to invite a whole generation to shine inside out.

I am proud to welcome Emma to the Lancôme family. Beside achieving so much at such an early age, Emma is adored by a generation for the perspectives that she shares. We can only appreciate her humor, and the authentic tone used to discuss meaningful topics.

Françoise Lehmann, Lancôme International President

Besides being a renown content creator who openly addresses the issues of her generation, Emma also got into the realm of business and created her own brand called ‘Chamberlain Coffee’ in 2020. Being the voice of a generation, Emma runs her own podcast ‘Anything Goes with Emma Chamberlain’ where she remains unfiltered. With a social media following of almost 30M, Emma has become one of the most influential, relatable and popular personalities. She is a role model for her generation who lives by her own convictions.

Starring in the first ever Lancôme web series

Launching on January 12th on Lancôme’s YouTube channel, the unprecedented web series, ‘How do you say beauty in French’, is full of surprises and sometimes ambushes, showing Emma’s fresh perspective and modern humor. Within the 4-episode series, Emma expresses her perspective on self-image and shares her vision of beauty, while she uncovers the world of skincare and makeup.

The series reflects a new approach for Lancôme to move towards more engaging content that is designed to create entertaining and meaningful discussions online. Emma is well-versed to discuss subjects that matter to the Gen Z, has an unparallel ability to connect with her audience and speaks their language. Emma is a culture-shaper and a trendsetter with whom the brand can produce the unexpected and connect with consumers on various social media platforms.

Watch now how Lancôme gave Emma the keys to their entire office, and be warned, she can do whatever she wants! Come into the beautiful world of Lancôme.

Can’t Stop Loving you

Kilian launches a new perfume within the collection ‘Les Fleurs Narcotiques’ named ‘Can’t Stop Loving You’. With the new edition, the founder of the Maison, Kilian Hennessy, wanted to portray his true declaration of love. ‘Can’t stop loving You’ a true love declaration: a perfume celebrating love, just in time for Valentine’s Day.

Created by founder Kilian Hennessy in collaboration with perfumer Alberto Morillas, ‘Can’t stop loving You’ enters the Narcotics olfactive family with, at the centerpiece, North African Orange Blossom. A flower to express the emotion carried by the name of the fragrance, as it is the symbol of eternal love. Alongside with Paradisone, an ethereal jasmine compound suggests pure paradise.

Its heart is incredibly suave, featuring Honey absolute from the Provence, a new ingredient in the Kilian Paris repertoire, for a delicious French touch. Vanilla absolute from Madagascar adds a doubly gourmand incitement to pleasure, while notes of Oak Moss bring an earthy intensity. Incense extract from Somalia lends sensuality, volume and endless mystery.

To increase the intensity of the desire, ‘Can’t stop loving You’ is surrounded by one of Kilian Hennessy’s favorite ingredients, Labdanum cistus absolute. A strongly ambery, balsamic-like gum, hand harvested for more than 100 years in Andalusia, Southwest of Spain – a place dear to the founder, where he decided to settle down. Labdanum cistus protects itself from the sun and heat by producing a gum that envelops twings and leaves, a symbol of natural truth. Being also one of the most sensual raw material in perfumery, it brings warmth and an animalic dimension to the fragrance: “It is an ingredient that, worn on skin, has nothing comparable, it is sensuality in its purest state”, explains Kilian Hennessy.

This feature echo founder’s belief inspired by the divine Achilles’ shield, also engraved on the endlessly refillable perfume flacon, that a fragrance can be as much a weapon of seduction as a protective armor. Both luminous and somber, ‘Can’t stop loving You’ is a narcotic floral fragrance that puts peace in danger.

The face of the fragrance is mexican Daniela De Jesus Cosio.

Kilian Can’t Stop Loving You is available as a 50 ml Eau de Parfum at selected stores worldwide. For more information, come into the beautiful world of Kilian.

Tequila Cazadores Unveils First-Ever Estate Release

Tequila Cazadores, one of the most popular premium tequilas in Mexico and the United States, has unveiled Tequila Cazadores 100 Year Estate Release. A limited edition expression celebrating the 100-year anniversary of the brand’s original reposado recipe.

This limited edition reposado blend honors the brand’s original tequila recipe that was perfected 100 years ago by a hard-working visionary in the Highland town of Arandas in Jalisco, Mexico in 1922. The closely guarded secret recipe was passed down by word of mouth for generations and is still used to create every single bottle of Tequila Cazadores.

The 100 Year Estate Release was produced using agave that was grown and matured on the Cazadores Distillery property in Los Altos de Jalisco. Made from a blend of tequilas aged in a combination of the distillery’s best hand-selected American oak and new French oak barrels, resulting in an extra special blend for such a monumental milestone.

This unique first-ever estate release from the brand will serve as a time capsule of this centennial anniversary for years to come. We are so excited to share this extra special blend of agave from the Cazadores property with tequila enthusiasts.

Jay Needham, Tequila Cazadores Brand Director.

The reposado tequila has a bright gold color from the unique blend of tequila from American oak and new French oak barrels. Tequila Cazadores 100 Year Estate Release has a smooth and sweet taste with a citrus and vanilla finish and an aroma of intense cooked agave with fruity and spicy notes.

The Tequila Cazadores 100 Year Estate Release will be coming soon in 2022 in limited quantities nationwide and on their website for a suggested retail price of $39.99 for a 750mL bottle. Come into the beautiful world of Cazadores.

Behold the Queen’s Secret: Guerlain’s Le Secret de la Reine

A magical perfumed jewel, Guerlain’s Le Secret de la Reine has been imagined in just two exclusive pieces. The first incarnation of Le Secret de la Reine pairs the brilliance of diamonds with the black shine of onyx and the luster of white gold, while the second, luminous piece is a virtuosic play between the shimmering of diamonds and rock crystal, illuminated by the radiance of yellow gold.

Created by French jeweller Lorenz Bäumer, Le Secret de la Reine is an exceptional creation that combines the meticulous craftsmanship of jewellery, watchmaking and perfumery, Le Secret de la Reine is a masterpiece of French savoir-faire. For each piece, hundreds of diamonds were selected by hand, with each stone placed individually in a process spanning over 500 hours.

Behold the Queen’s Secret: with one beat of her wings, she releases the most exquisite of nectars. One touch of the spectacular 2-carat pear-shaped diamond that adorns its body, and the Bee opens its diamond-paved wings, revealing a delicate latticework of gold inspired by the honeycomb. Tucked inside the bees wings is a hidden chamber, ready to be filled with the wearer’s signature fragrance.
